Promoter Herb Welch has heard just about all the requests. Through more than a quarter of a century of experience, Welch knows that patrons prefer to see established stars, heroes they know and can trust, villains they know and can't trust. Occasionally they like to see a match with two villains, against each other. Sometimes they ask for new faces. * * * The group that asks for new faces is in for a treat at Legion Arena tonight where two newcomers are booked in a six-man tag team main event. Rocky Starr and Terry Morgan are the grapplers who haven't worked the Blytheville ring previously. Rocky: is building a name for himself in a wide region. And what about Morgan? "I know him," the promoter said. "He's a good one.' * * * Rocky and Terry weighing 220 apiece, have been lined up to join Dwayne Peale against .the masked Medics and Luke Graham. It's a best-of-three but the promoter has extended the time limit from an hour to 90 minutes. An hour wouldn't be leaving these big boys with much elbow room. Medics and big Luke should form one of the roughest teams ever to work here. In addition there are three, 10-minute openers: Medic No. 1 vs. Starr; Graham vs. Morgan; and Peale vs. Medic No. 2. * * * Admissions are 75 cents, 25 cents for chillun. Reserved ringside seats may be purchased inside the Arena. First bell at 8:15. . Welch did not name a referee. "Id belter not say. l ran into trouble with referees the last couple times."

Roller today stayed his order directing the National League to return the Braves from Atlanta to Milwaukee by Wednesday, and ordered baseball to post a 1100,000 security bond pending an appeal to the Wisconsin Supreme Court. * * * Judge Roller's agreement to delay his enforcement order came a day after the state's high court agreed to hear an appeal by baseball on June 9. Roller's order directed that the league present an expansion plan by noon Monday which would give Milwaukee a 1987 team, or. else return the Braves by Wednesday. But the first deadline slipped by during the legal manuevering, with no plan before the court and the Braves still in Atlanta. The defense also presented a routine motion for a new trial, and Judge Roller denied it as expected. ' • DETROIT (AP) - If Charlie Dressen had any inkling he might be having another heart attack, he kept it a secret from everyone.

PAUL - MINNEAPOLIS (AP)—Camilo Pascual, once baseball's Mr. Curve, is back on the beam, and Minnesota Manager Sam Mele thinks his Cuban ace of past years can lead the Twins to a second straight American League pennant. 'Pascual, the forgotten man of Minnesota's 1965 pennant season when arm trouble and surgery shelved him over two months, has that big, sweeping curve and his control back this year. He scattered seven hits Monday to pitch the Twins to a 2-1 victory over Washington, and become the first American League pitcher to win six games. He has lost once. * * * i 1965 ace Jim (Mudcat) Grant off to a mediocre 2-3 start and the club's top. left-hander, Jim Kaat, showing only a 3-3 record, the Twins can thank Pascual for nearly half their 13 victories. "I see no reason why Camilo shouldn't win 20 games this year, the way he's been throwing," said Mele. "He definitely looks like the'Camilo of old. "His curve may not be quite as overpowering as it once was, and he may not strike out as many as he used to, but he's winning again for us and that's the big thing." Pascual, who won 20 games in 1962 and 21 in 1963, isn't striking out as many batters as he did a few years ago, but he isn't walking as many either. In 50 innings, he's struck out 27, walked only 11 and has a 2.52 earned run average. * * * Monday, he struck out three and didn't walk a man for the tiiird time this season. From 1961 through 1964, Pascual struck out over 200 batters every year, averaging 211. He also walked an average of 85 men over that four-year span. Pascual bested Phil Ortega in _ mound duel Monday. Ortega allowed only eight ipaced hits, but got into trouble in the ninth when the Twins loaded the >ases on singles by Harmon Killebrew and Bernie Allen, plus an intentional walk to pinch-hitter on Mincher. '. * * * Then Senator rookie reliever Casey Cox, who replaced .Ortega after Allen's hit, walked the Twins' Cesar Tovar on four straight pitches to force home the winning run, Tovar drove in Minnesota'! first run with a tacrifice fly following Zoilo Verulles' triple in the third inning. Washington tied it in the fourth on Jim King's first home run of the season. The Twins' victory over th« Senators was the only major league game scheduled Monday; A full slate of 10 games was scheduled for today and tonight.

(Second of a Series) By SANDY PADWE NEW YORK - (NBA) The tournament was in a cramped, poorly lit recreation center in the Bronx, but the players were strictly the best of the five boroughs. Two of the teams were coached by Walter November and Hilton White. Coach George Ireland of Loyola (Chicago) and coach Don Haskins of Texas Western knows them well. When Loyola won the national championship in 1963, two key players were Jerry Harkness and Ron Miller. November steered both boys to Loyola. This yean Texas Western won the national championship. Three of its important players—Willie Worsley, Willie Cager and Nevil Shed —wound up in El Paso because White has "connections" with Texas Western. White works for the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. He coaches a team called the Falcons on which Cager .played one season. This year Willie has two of the best high school players in New York on the same team. Both reportedly ars going to Texas Western. * * * ''Hilton White is just a friend," says Texas Western athletic director George McCarty. "He doesn't get paid for. scouting. All he's doing is helping kids get an education." November, who works for an insurance company, coached a team called the Reliables. At least four of its players—considered among New York's best—are headed for Loyola. These men furnish the uniforms for the teams and usually buy the boys a hamburger and milk shake after the game. There are other "coaches" who are banned from the postseason tournaments because they pay players for their services. Mike Tynberg, a former North Carolina recruiter, was banned this year. * * *. ... "He had to go over to Jersey," one of his competitors said, "where they don't know him so well." Tynberg's cohorts says he Is "working for Marquette" these days. "You don't mind spending the money," Tynberg once said, ". . .but when they go somewhere else you don't like it at all. These kids are funny. They're not very loyal." For schools without a November, a White or a Tyn- berg, there are "independents" who sell information "The NCAA knows all about ;me," boasted one Indians Shin* In Cliff-Hangers ByBENOLAN Associated Press Sports Writer NEW YORK (AP) - Figuring The Majors: There's a good reason why the Cleveland Indians are leading the American League. Of the 24 games they've played, the Indians have been involved in. 13 one-run games and won 10 of them. Boog Powell, Baltimore's big first baseman, has gone hitless in his last 17 times at bat and his average has dwindled 52 points to .202. His last hit was a home run in the second game of a doubleheader against Cleveland May I. The weekend aeries against Boston which draw 81,899 in new Anaheim Stadium lifted the Cal- fornia Angels into the major league lead in home attendance with 386,810. The Los Angeles Dodgers are next with 358,947, followed by the New York Mets with 342,936 and the Houston Astros,299,035. Although tail will be a month Willie Mays Is likely to remember because he broke the National League career bom run reord, the San Francisco Star is batting only .144 in May. He's had 13 hits in 53 times at bat Joe Morgan of Houston, the National League's leading bat- tar with a JW average, inuit anjay hlttlm the Astrodome. He's batting .4J8 in 16 games there. His average lor U road to Mir free-lancer who is known as Freddie the Spook. "I'm not afraid of anything. "Right now I'm working for about 40 different schools, although only 12 could be classified big time. The rest are junior colleges. That's a new market. They're hungry for ballplayers and they don't have to worry about breaking rules because they're not in th« NCAA. "I built a championship team for Coffeyville (Kan.) Junior .College. They had all my kids and won the national title (1962). ''I go after the boys without the grades, the boys no one wants to touch. They go to the junior colleges, get their marks up and then go to the big schools. Chris Pervall, the leading scorer at Iowa the last two years, was one of my boys. He was at Coffeyville first. Al Lopes, who went to Kansas, TONIGHT ** Mound in LA LOS ANGELES (AP). — Pitcher Juan Marichal of the San Francisco Giants . and catcher John Roseboro of the Los Angeles Dodgers face each other in Dodger Stadium tonight for the first time since their celebrated bat incident of last August 22. The bat incident was unclear when it happened, and little light has been shed since. It is established that in the altercation, Roseboro's head" w gashed, and Marichal was later fined $1,750 and suspended eight playing dates. * * * Both had plenty to say at the time, but now don't want to talk of it all, saying, "It's still in the courts." The reference is to the still-pending $110,000 law suit that Roseboro brought against the Giants' ace right- hander. ' Roseboro said Marichal, at the plate, hit him on the-head with a bat. Marichal said Rose boro had returned a ball close to his head that it nicked his ear. At any rate, Roseboro will be behind the plate tonight for the third-place Dodgers anc the unbeaten Marichal—aiming for his eighth straight victory- is scheduled to pitch for the first-place Giants. They've met on the field since the incident, but not at Dodger Stadium. was another. * * * "There ate guys like me In all the big cities. Any college can contact them very simply. Lots of colleges have high school coaches working for them. I take pride in what I do, .getting kids out of the slums and into a school. "I have'my expenses paid. The-figures vary according to where I travel. Nine times out of 10 the payment doesn't come from the school involved. It usually comes from alumni, friends of the school or even the coach. "I, don't think it's .wrong. Where there's talent to sell, there's always a buyer." Freddie the Spook calls himself .a "will-o-the-wisp." He's devious and suspicious and make his own contacts with coaches on his own terms. "He has called me about 50 times," one coach in Texas said. "He'll say,'For $50, I'll get you a good forward or a good guard.' "And then you can't, get in touch with him, except by telegram. If there's something urgent and you have to phone, you call some Ned- ick's hot dog stand in New York. He's an amazing char, acter. I don't know where he gets his information, but he knows when you're going to- be hi New York. Next thing, he's calling you in the hotel room, telling you about his 'kids'." One Southern Conference coach met Freddie the Spook in a hotel lobby and excus- sed himself to go up to his room and shave. He must have left the door ajar. "I'm looking in the ror," the coach recalled, "and there he is standing behind me. He's got the perfect nickname." ..; The coach suddered. :••; (Next: The "Humanitaf. ians.") •••:• INTERNATIONAL ..~ Jacksonville 5, Rochester'4 •' Only game scheduled PACIFIC COAST Tacoma 3, Phoenix 1 ^ Denver 2, Indianapolis ft'••'' Spokane 6, Seattle 5 San Diego 7, Vancouver t Tulsa 9-7, Oklahoma Citfji-« Only games scheduled - ~ KING EDWARD TIP CIGARILLO MILDM • KTTE* • Tick-tock...tick-tack:..
